    Hello,
    I live on a twenty acre farm in Nebraska and have Morgan horses, minis, ponies and mini donkeys as well as five chickens, three Rhode Island Red and two Buff Orpintons. They are four years old and quite laying on winter. They have started again now but that gave me the idea to get some more chickens. I am interested in Austrolorps or Barred Rocks and I am also wanting some bantam just for pets and I am leaning toward Cochin, Brahams, or bantam Dominiques. I only want two of the reg size so I am hoping the farm store with let me get two bantums to fulfill the four at a time order requirements.

    Welcome to BYC!!! I have a major soft spot for bantam cochins, so I'd never dissuade someone from getting a few of them, lol.
